Football at Crich


Belper News 1 June 1900


Thomas Thornton 15, Robert Gaunt 14, William Haslam 16 and William England 16, all of Crich, were summoned for playing football upon the highway at Crich on May 19.

Pc Morley said he saw the defendants on the road towards Fritchley playing with a full-sized football. He saw them playing for five minutes.

Defendants said they did not annoy anyone at the time and they only played for three minutes.

Bench ordered the defendants to pay the costs 6s 9d each. They must not play on the highway, said the chairman, if they persisted in doing so they would be severely punished.
